Assistance Sessions

What was previously called “trainings” are now known as assistance sessions. We realized that many of you don’t need training on how to complete a data field or upload a document but that you may want our staff’s assistance. Or more importantly, a good reason to leave your office and spend two uninterrupted hours completing your profile. If you are interested in attending an assistance session at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, contact givesmartokc@occf.org.
